The Ugly Truth About Food

Preparation methods further affects nutritional quality of food. Chopping, grinding, and heating foods depletes nutrients. Common preservatives added in processing cause depletion of nutrients andrepparttar use of antimicrobial preservatives may decreaserepparttar 113076 bacteria normally present inrepparttar 113077 colon, impedingrepparttar 113078 body's ability to absorb what nutrients are left in food after processing.

There has been very little research done comparing nutrients in food before and after processing. The result is that nutritional labels are calculated from unprocessed foods using what are called "nutrient retention factors". However, these formulas do not consider all aspects of nutrient loss and have been shown to be inaccurate in representing nutrient levels in foods after processing.

So what can be done to ensure adequate nutrition in our diets? The most sensible approach would be to eat only fresh, organically raised fruits and vegetables picked fromrepparttar 113079 garden just prior to consumption, eaten inrepparttar 113080 whole, raw state. Of course, this is not possible forrepparttar 113081 vast majority of people. While eating foods as close torepparttar 113082 ideals is a goal, it is no longer realistic to expect diet alone to provide adequate nutrition. Some form of supplementation is necessary.

In order to incorporaterepparttar 113083 proper nutrients, inrepparttar 113084 optimal amounts in ratio to other nutrients and inrepparttar 113085 most bioavailable form, great care must be taken inrepparttar 113086 selection of all supplements. Price is not necessarily an indication of quality. Takingrepparttar 113087 maximum amount safely possible is not a guarantee of maximum benefit, either. Due diligence is required inrepparttar 113088 selection process. Know that what you are taking is truly of benefit to your body.

Good nutrition is essential for healthy living, but obtaining sufficient nutrition from diet alone is nearly impossible due to modern farming, storage and preparation methods demanded by consumers. Careful use of supplementation is therefore a requirement for health.


What causes our foods to be devoid of nutrition? Modern farming and food preservation methods often play a role in nutrient depletion. There has been little research done comparing nutrients in food before and after processing. What is known shows us that supplementation is necessary for maintaining good health.
